Cary Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast

This morning was the Cary Chamber Eye Opener Networking Breakfast for the month of October.

Eye Opener Breakfast Cary Chamber October 2017

This networking breakfast is held once a month on the 4th Wednesday at 7:30am at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary.  The event usually draws a crowd of 50-60 chamber members and guests from the business community.  The guest speaker this morning was Tom Gough, Senior Vice President & Administrator at WakeMed Cary Hospital.  He talked about the fast pace of growth in the Cary community and how that is impacting hospitals and local health care.  He shared some of the new and exciting innovate technologies being used at WakeMed Cary to help patients with everything from cancer treatment to maternity care and all services in between.  WakeMed  Cary plays a huge role in our community through their support and sponsorships of such things like WakeMed Soccer Park and the Movies by Moonlight at Koka Booth.

During the breakfast I saw my friend and client of Smith & Smith, CPA, Master Rondy and her husband, Fred Huerta.

World Polio Day October 24th 2017

Yesterday, October 24th, was World Polio Day.  The polio disease is close to being eradicated and World Polio Day was established by Rotary International to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against polio.  In honor of World Polio Day 2017, my Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club held 2 different fundraisers to raise funds to donate to the organization EndPolioNow.

We had a lunch & dinner fundraiser at Danny’s Bar-B-Que in Cary and partnered with My Berry Frozen Yogurt for $1/per bowl yesterday being donated.  Thanks to all who came out and supported us!  It looks like we have raised around $250!

Master Rondy presents to CCC Biz of Women

Master Rondy presents to CCC Biz of Women

So this blog is going to be a mix of many random things…should be interesting!  Last week at the Cary Chamber Business of Women luncheon, we had the opportunity to hear from Master Rondy of White Tiger Taekwondo.  Master Rondy has been a client of Smith & Smith, CPA for many years, and really is an amazing woman!  She’s been recognized for her work in the martial arts field and continues to win awards, accolades and honors for her talented skills.  She shared with us a really cool presentation about her background and her career in the martial arts, along with sharing about her cool group called Lady Tigers.  Thanks for sharing your knowledge (and killer martial arts skills) with us Master Rondy! Our oldest son, Trent, will be taking classes at White Tiger in a few weeks, he is sooooooooooooo excited!

 

100_9211I had a sweet gift come to the office last week…my dear friend, Paige Williams, owner of Great Harvest Bread Co. in Cary, came by the office to see me.  Paige and I have been friends for many years, and we’ve networked all across Wake County together!  She brought me the most adorable high-heel shoe tape dispenser!  I’ve been giving these away for months as door prizes at the Triangle Ladies Power Lunch, but had yet to purchase one for myself!  To say that I love it would be an understatement!  Thanks so much Paige for thinking of me!  You know a friend knows you well when they bring you a tape dispenser that is a miniature high-heel leopard print shoe!  Let me know if you need anything taped and I will gladly assist you!  Also go by Great Harvest Bread to see their delicious Easter Goodies (I’m a huge fan myself of their oh-so-cute BUNNY BREAD).

 

PINK in concert with friends

PINK in concert with friends

I checked something off of my ‘bucket list’ a few weeks ago too…I went to see PINK in concert.  You may scoff at that, but just imagine getting to see one of your most favorite music artist in concert live, and well, PINK is top of that list for me.  Back in the Fall of 2012, I purchased tickets to see PINK in Charlotte, along with three of my good close girlfriends.  Last week it happened for me!  We made the pilgrimage to Charlotte to see PINK perform, and WOW, it was excellent!  She did all of this crazy acrobatic stuff, flying through the air and swinging from silk sheets, truly amazing!  We had a nice weekend visit in Charlotte; I’d like to go back when I have more time to explore.  Thanks to Lois Cozart of My Girlfriend’s Closet for the ‘rocker style’ Boston Proper black cut-out-shoulder top.
